About the Walking Trail

The Wildflower Wander is a hike up a steep hill with rewarding views over the Adelaide Plains, as well as seasonal opportunities to view wildflowers including native orchids. The quiet gullies are a haven to a variety of small birds.

Start the hike from Gate 3 on Perserverance Road. From the gate follow the Yellowtail Loop south (right) for 200 metres to reach the start of the Wildflower Wander. The trail begins just 20 metres up the first fire track, and is easily seen from the main fire track.

The trail is one-way, but you can:

  • return downhill via the same trail (3.2km return), or
  • return directly on the Pink Gum Loop by turning right at top Wildflower Walk (2.8km circuit)
  • make a larger circuit by turning left at the top of the Wildflower Walk, and following the Pink Gum Loop (4.1km circuit)

Mountain bikers are not permitted on this trail. Half way up the hill the trail crosses a mountain bike trail (the Wildside Downhill), so use caution as you approach the intersection (there are give way signs.) We haven’t seen any evidence of mountain bikers on section of the trail below this intersection, but see some evidence of the occasional rider above that intersection.
